There was a time when khoya was not readilly available abroad. Of course, now you get the frozen ones too and can stored for around a month in the freezer.I have thought upon many options on how to make khoya quickly. I have also made khoya with whole milk several times.But its a long time consuming process and take almost 2 hours of your time in the kitchen. Though that is the only way you get the best and freshest khoya !! Then I have seen instant khoya made with milk powder etc. But that did not satisfy me. Suddenly it occured to me that I could use evaporated milk cans available in the nearest supermarket to make khoya. In evaporated milk, around 60 percent of the water is already removed from the fresh milk.So it should consume fairly lesser time compared to using the whole fresh milk. I finally tried it yesterday.It was done in less than 30 minutes. It came out good though the colour was slightly darker comparitively. I made gulab jamuns with it and it turned out really nice. So I would certainly recommend this like if you really need khoya for your dish and the Indian shop is beyond your reach that time!!:)
